Register now to secure your spot for the biennial What Really Works in Education Conference, sponsored by CSUN’s Center for Teaching and Learning. This year’s theme is “What Really Works with High Leverage Practices and Collaboration” and every attendee will get a free professional book. The Connecting High Leverage Practices to Student Success: Collaboration in Inclusive Classrooms book that was published in August 2023 with Corwin Press. On Friday, September 29, we will offer a 3-hour workshop on Co-Teaching 101 that introduces strategies for co-planning, co-instructing, and co-assessing (4-7pm). Saturday, September 30, will take a more traditional conference format with multiple sessions available each hour between 8-5pm, with breakfast and lunch included. Experts on topics related to “Collaboration and Academics” and “Collaboration and Behavior” as well as myriad related topics will be flying in from around the United States to be the presenters at the conference. Keynote presentations will be done by Dr. Melissa Jenkins (University of Mary Washington, VA) and Dr. Wendy Murawski (California State University, Northridge), as the authors of the text. In addition to our experts, we will be spotlighting local educators as they share with us their tips for engaging learners that have led them to be so successful!
